Our staff

Dr. Winnie Yuen

Veterinarian 

Dr. Winnie Yuen has always had a love for animals. One of her fondest childhood memories is the adoption of a pug puppy. The pug fostered her dream of becoming a veterinarian. Since her teenage years, she has gained experience from volunteering and working at emergency, referral, and general practices for dogs and cats. Upon completing high school, Winnie went on to complete a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Guelph. Winnie’s journey continued when she flew across the world to study veterinary medicine at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Upon graduation in 2011, Winnie has moved back to Toronto and has been working in Toronto and Mississauga ever since.

She is a veterinarian that enjoys focusing on the pleasure of companionship and also on the health and well-being of animals. Being a pet owner herself, she has an excellent understanding of the stress related to being a great pet parent. Winnie has a passion for integrative/alternative medicine, preventative care, and client education. In 2014, she completed the Veterinary Acupuncture course at the Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine School in Florida. Furthermore, she is excited to continue her education in the fields of herbal medicine and food therapy. Winnie is married to Dr. Augustin Leung and they live with their three cats: Misu, Timmy, and Chloe. In addition to their three cats, they have a Labrador named Bagel, a Pomchi named Bailey, and a Pug named Kevin. In her spare time, Winnie enjoys reading, crocheting, practicing yoga, and cooking.

Kiona

Veterinary Assistant

Kiona joined our fantastic team after finishing her undergrad at McMaster where she majored in biology and minored in psychology. Among her group of friends, she is always the one who is known for having a special affinity for animals. She had volunteered at an animal shelter back in Hamilton while she was at school and fostered an absolutely adorable shelter cat named Prince.

Besides a keen interest in companion animals, Kiona is also passionate about environment protection and wildlife conservation. She is a huge fan of bringing her recycled bag, her own water bottle and even her own straw into work to help support the environment. Kiona is looking forward to visiting the “Big 5” (a term that refers to Safari Royalty in Africa):the lion, leopard, elephant, black rhinoceros, and African buffalo. She would love to take on roles related to wildlife conservation and animal welfare in the future.

Kiona loves to travel around the world and exploring new restaurants in her spare time.
